NBA: Dallas Mavericks - Denver Nuggets
- Title : NBA: Dallas Mavericks - Denver Nuggets
The Nuggets are averaging 116.8 points per game, and are averaging 122 points per game in their last three games. Despite the fact that the Mavericks are surrendering 109.4 points per game, anticipate that the Nuggets should score enough points to push the score over the aggregate. With that in mind, I make the fair total on this game 220.5 points here.
When the Hardaway Jr. scores 18 or more points this season, the Mavericks have won seven games and lost just twice. On the other hand, when he scores 17 or fewer points, the Mavericks have won once and lost five times. Hardaway’s shooting will likely be key again and also, these teams met a couple of weeks ago in Denver in a game that went over. Luka had one of his best games of the season in the win.
After two exhausting extra time wins against the Suns throughout the end of the week, the Denver Nuggets head to Dallas for a new challenge. Nuggets are one of the most profitable over teams in the league at 12-4 O/U. No grand surprise there as Denver is 4th in scoring and just a mediocre defensive squad this season. Dallas has been the opposite at 6-10 O/U on the season, again no surprise.
These two teams will meet in a rematch from Jan. 7, where the Mavericks won out and out as longshots in Denver 124-117, going path over the end complete of 220.5.I rely on these powerful offenses to keep showing their scoring ability and see possible worth.
The spread is very tight to me, but I think there is some value on the total. I don’t think the market has sufficiently adjusted for the impact of Porzingis and Porter’s returns, both of whom thrive offensively.
With that in mind, I make the fair total on this game 224. I see the reinvigorated Mavericks edging out the fatigued Nuggets in a close 114-111 game. I recommend a play on the over, but not much higher than the current total of 222. For me is over 220, 5 good enough here.
